Today's Horoscope This week This month

Libra horoscope for February 2023

Because the Sun will always spend the majority of the first three weeks of February in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart before returning to your busy work sector, this is a month when a balance between work and play becomes a priority. Yet while the solar spotlight will always shift from one side of life's fence to the other at the same time each year, there is never a clear cut or dramatic shift from one to the other. Venus and Mercury, who travel with the Sun can be slightly in front or behind, creating an overlap. Added to that, with Saturn in a playful and creative part of your chart since 2020 and Neptune in your work sector since 2012, things don't go off the boil on either front.

However, the dynamics are shifting and while work and job matters have dialled back after Jupiter left your work sector just before Christmas, Venus is already here and is preparing for the Sun's return on 19th February and Saturn's return early next month, where he will spend the next three years. While this means that Saturn's nearly three year visit to a playful and creative part of your chart is coming to an end, Pluto will not only return next month to take his place but after an initial settling in period, will be here for the next 20 years.

Adding to a need for a balance between work and play this month is that while Mars is working to make the most of his last full month in an adventurous part of your chart, his return to your career sector next month will see this professional year strengthen and become even busier. Keen to take advantage of the right work/life balance is Venus, who after leaving your work sector on 20th February will join Jupiter in your relationship sector. Meanwhile, behind the scenes the dwarf planet Ceres is processing incoming information as her retrograde turn on 4th February puts her double dip visit into your personal needs and priorities into review mode.

Love & Romance

While Jupiter returned to your relationship sector just before Christmas, with one full month under his belt and some extraordinary developments late last month, the planet of luck and expansion is ready to move things forward. While it was the dwarf planet Eris' direct turn that after five months in retrograde motion, much of it while Jupiter was also in retrograde motion here last year, that has given your relationships the green light, it was the return of the asteroid Juno that has given this a major boost. While only an asteroid, Juno is not only the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships together with Jupiter they are the king and queen of the Olympian gods.

Husband and wife from way back, this is the first time that Jupiter and Juno have been together in your relationship sector in 35 years and the timing couldn't be better. To start with, it is more about the journey, but things will become a lot more real when Venus returns on 20th February, bringing the planets of love, luck and commitment together. This is the kind of power team that your relationships haven't seen in decades, with things continuing to evolve over the coming months. Key days for paying attention are when the Moon moves through from 22nd February to 24th February.

Meanwhile, because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your romantic sector, the solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart and all things romantic in February. While Venus left just after the Sun returned last month, the planet of love's legacy lives on and especially after her alignment with Saturn, now in his last full month here. It was their alignment that saw Venus' romantic desires and expectations come together with Saturn's resolve to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. This is something that has a lot of support for and from Mars, in his last full month in an adventurous part of your chart, with his passion for adventure continuing to fuel a mix of romance, passion and adventure.

Business & Career

This is a month of two halves, though not one that has a line drawn down the middle and instead that line will be drawn on 20th February, though with the transition starting a day earlier on 19th February. Until then, for the first time in three years Venus and Neptune, one the planet of money, desire and attraction and the other the planet of dreams and fantasies are alone together in your work sector and will have been for over three weeks by the time the Sun returns on 19th February. That is a lot of time for two planets that have no interest in keeping your feet on the ground and are more focused on the 'what' than the when, where and how.

Yet this couldn't be more important and is more than just a chance to focus on your dreams, desires and expectations before the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your work situation and job matters in a way that is more about having your eyes open and head out of the sand. What makes what might feel more like wishful thinking or pipedreams so important that it needs to be fully embraced is that Saturn will not only return early next month but will team up with Neptune for the first time here in our lifetime. Saturn and Neptune will then spend the next three years working to turn dreams into reality, making Venus and Neptune's time on their own here key to first having a dream.

The Moon will return to your work sector on 20th February, during the Sun's first full day here and just hours before Venus is due to leave. The timing means that the Moon will align with the Sun to create a New Moon just 50 minutes before Venus is due to leave, ushering in the second half of the month and the beginning of the next chapter. Meanwhile, there is more to the Moon's return to your career sector from 2nd February to 4th February than just a chance to fuel your professional instincts and imagination and become more emotionally and intuitively engaged. There is no planetary activity on the career front, but with Mars not only returning next month but in Saturn's early days in your career sector, this hints at even bigger times ahead professionally.


While the lunar nodes will continue their fight to maintain the right balance between money coming in and money going out, this month's stars make that job a lot easier. While all the focus is on the side of the financial fence where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have and the South Node is alone in your income sector, it is backed up by the growing number of planets in your work sector. What makes this even more of an advantage, apart from making this a good month for income and job matters, is that this support is external.

Had there been planets in your income sector, they would be in direct competition with Uranus, in his first full month in direct motion in your financial sector. Instead, the only time you will be aware of the lunar nodes' constant pull and push to ensure a balance between money coming in and money going out is when the Moon moves through your two money houses. The first time will be when the Moon moves through your income sector from 12th February to 14th February, something that will see the Moon clash with the North Node and Uranus in your financial sector.

However, as well as sharpening your nose for money and acting as a trigger, this is the Moon's only visit while Venus, the planet of money is in your work sector. This will turn any financial tension this might create into motivation while making these pivotal days on the income and job fronts. The Moon will also cross the lunar nodes when it moves through your financial sector from 24th February to 27th February. However, with no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence, the Moon will cross the lunar nodes but instead of financial tension, this will be more a reminder of a need for balance. This will also fuel your financial instincts and imagination just as money matters are starting to gain some traction.


While the Sun won't return to your health sector until 19th February, something that will always put the solar spotlight on your health needs, situation and matters at the same time each year, this is something that you already have a jump on. Having begun the year with Neptune and the asteroid Juno here, one the planets of dreams and the other the queen of commitment has already helped you set resolutions for the New Year. However, it wasn't until Venus returned later last month that the planet of beauty gave you the desire to look and feel good that will keep you motivated. It is a day after the Sun returns that Venus will leave, with a New Moon offering a chance to draw a new line in the sand. The Moon is here from 20th February to 22nd February, giving you an intuitive read on what your body is telling you just as the Sun ushers in a more practical phase.
